  • But really it's a movie, essentially familiar in structure and tone, that owes everything to a pair of knockout performances. It's a casting triumph.

  • This has open horizons, and a winning naïveté.

  • "My Salinger Year" often trips on the self-serious nature of its premise, and struggles with an antiquated quality out of sync with its timeline...

  • Could use an edit.

  • It's a running theme that writers are different than most people would probably imagine. But when it comes to accepting Joanna as one of them, the film never convinces.

  • A simperingly coy knock-off of The Devil Wears Prada without the sexiness and fun, and so wet that in the immortal words of Molesworth, you could shoot snipe off it.
